Reviewed December 16, 2012

Once or twice a year I travel to Zurich on business with clients and we often stay at the Hotel Storchen. Everything about this hotel is first class; a great location on the river and near great shopping and restaurants, comfortable bedrooms, a wonderful restaurant and very helpful and professional staff. I've probably been there 20 times and never had a bad visit.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the river.

We only stayed for one night, but the stay was heavenly! We were upgraded from junior suite to suite upon arrival and the room was breathtaking! From the top floor corner we could see the the best panoramic view of the river front on our private terrace. Even though it was cold that night we stayed out there to enjoy the Christmas lights up and down the old city. The room amenities covered every need, and the decor is delightful! I will highly recommend this hotel because of my experience.

I have been staying at this hotel since 2004 and it keeps getting better. The location is tremendous, the best walking in Zurich can be done from the hotel's front door. The staff which has been there for years is always friendly and helpful. Storchen also has my favorite breakfast buffet in Europe. Always a full selection of fresh and tasty items and a beautiful place to start the day. I highly recommend this hotel for business or pleasure in Zurich.

I stayed in Hotel Storchen one night in November 2012. I wanted a hotel near to business appointments I had in the center of Zurich. The hotel met both that requirement (I walked to my appointments) and my expectation of a hotel ranked #1 on Trip Advisor. The location is enhanced by the views over the Limmat river and the limited traffic that travels through this part of the city at night. I slept with my window open.

The Storchen's location makes it a perfect place to stay to explore the old quarter of Zurich - museums, churches, restaurants, shops and the main train station are all in easy walking distance. This is a hotel with centuries of tradition but it has modern facilities and a very welcoming & friendly staff. The Storchen is a small hotel that feels comfortable but runs with predictable Swiss precision.

Room Tip: Most rooms have a view of the Limmat river but some have better views than others.... Noise is not a...

I stay at Storchen each November on a business trip. I love the charmingly decorated room combined with all modern amenities. I love that it is right on the water. I love the outside bar looking across the river at the fabulous church. But I especially love the area. It's become tradition to step outside and visit van Laack for great shirts and cufflinks, Teuscher for special Christmas chocolates, Tabak-Ladeli for hand-rolled cigars and Parfumerie Stemmler for a gift for my wife. Not to mention great restaurants like Bindella and Bianchi in close walking distance. All of this AND a friendly, helpful staff, especially the concierges, who are fantastic!

Room Tip: Facing the river us especially lovely.

The Storchen Hotel is in the centre of the Zurich overlooking the river with wonderful shopping nearby. Our bedroom was attractively decorated and well planned with an excellent bathroom. All the members of staff we came across were friendly and welcoming and in particular those on the front desk who went to great lengths to help us with travel, museums etc.A brilliant place for a relaxing weekend.
